Sandy Cove Trail Description

The Sandy Cove Trail is a popular family-friendly hike that sets out from Harrison Hot Springs and travels along the water’s edge to reach a beautiful sandy beach and a scenic lookout at Whippoorwill Point. This trail has some minor changes in elevation, but they are more than manageable for hikers of all skill levels if you take your time.

The trail travels through a beautiful stretch of forest to arrive at Sandy Cove Beach, a peaceful spot to sit and look out over the serene waters of Harrison Lake. Continuing around the loop, you will have more amazing views over the water and surrounding mountains from another quiet viewpoint at Whippoorwill Point. This is a fantastic hike if you are looking for scenic views and a bit of peace and quiet on the trail.
